The House passed House Bill 92 last month, and it is already out of committee in the Senate, apparently ready for action next week. The bill passed by a vote of 33-1-1-6, with only Rep. Sean Lynn voting no, and Rep. Madinah Wilson-Anton not voting, and other six Represenatives absent, as you can see in the chart below.
This bill would require drivers to change lanes or reduce their speed while approaching a stationary vehicle that is on the right or left shoulders that has its blinking double hazard lights on, or has road flares displayed or has traffic ones deployed, or any other caution or warning signs.
